This book has been extremely helpful in changing the way I speak and think. It is very easy to read. It demonstrates the power that is available to each of us through God's Word. I have given copies to friends, and we are using it as a Bible study book.
I have struggled all my life with a sharp tongue, to the point that many people avoid me. One of those christian women that everyone knows is a christian woman, but just can't stand to be around for long. This book carries the tools to make changes that are above anything I have ever seen. If you are tired of hearing people tell you that it isn't what you say but rather how you say it that is offensive to everyone - this book is a definite read for you. Joyce Meyer is a nuts and bolts author. One that doesn't just give you lofty principles that leave you confused about how to attain them. She gives you examples and down to earth instructions that you can follow to a better life in Christ. I am only on Chapter 6, but already people around me that give me honest feedback have seen a difference. The first three chapters made me angry, as I have never been one to be "preached" at and it was all stuff I had heard so many times before. It was difficult to push ahead to Chapter 4. Something started happening in Chapter 4, I started to get interested, I started to have to read things one section at a time and think and pray about it. Interestingly enough, I bought the book for my two sisters and they had the same response. We now are reading the book and talking about it via email as they live across the country from me. We have drawn closer through this experience and, even though my one sister was very skeptical, she is getting way more than she expected out of it. Great read, I hope anyone who sees this pushes through those first 3 chapters to get the healing and support the rest of the book promises and I've begun to see.
